Luckily, eagled-eyed ITV viewers saw the funny side, when they spotted a mysterious man lurking underneath one of the tables during a crucial moment at the Masquerade Ball.

With his shiny bald head and unwelcome presence, he could even have been mistaken for EastEnders' Stuart Highway turning up in the wrong soap!

The bizarre blunder left fans joking that the surprise lurker was indeed the person who pushed Kim Tate over the balcony!

The strange intruder was seen on his hands and knees behind Kerry Wyatt - clearly unaware he was in shot.

One viewer tweeted: "Jeez @emmerdale the person who is gonna push Kim Tate is lurking there in the background..... Not a great job at hiding though!!"

Emmerdale 'fessed up to the error straight away, replying to the tweet: "SUSSED! #BowToKim."

As Kim Tate's homecoming began to unravel, other fans complained about the camera work.

One annoyed viewer wrote: "Angles are making me spin. #emmerdale."

To which another replied: "Not just me then was starting to feel dizzy."

Fans certainly weren't complaining about the action-packed double episode, however, with the name Kim Tate still trending on Twitter the next day.

After being pushed over the balcony, Kim survived the fall and was last seen in hospital being nursed back to recovery.

Ross Barton also ended the evening in hospital after being bashed over the head by a rock, but at least Simon McManus is now in police custody.

The big shock of the night was the apparent death of Joe Tate. He was punched unconscious by Cain Dingle, and seemingly finished off by Graham Foster.

While actor Ned Porteous has confirmed he's left the soap, many fans believe he's not dead and will return one day.
